Tracklisting
1. LOVE LETTER
2. Diamond Heart
3. Beautiful Flowers
4. LOVE LETTER (Winter Acoustic Mix)
    [First pressing bonus track]
5. LOVE LETTER (instrumental)
6. Diamond Heart (instrumental)

This is BoA’s 24th single and it was released on September 26, 2007. The single reached #3 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 45,524 copies.

When it comes to BoA’s slower paced songs, LOVE LETTER isn’t bad. The song is a little on the average side in terms of composition but I really enjoyed BoA’s radiant vocals. She puts more emphasis in the high notes and that is really evident during the vibrant chorus.

The first B-side is the not-so-good Diamond Heart. The song is upbeat with a good rhythm, but the melody is scattered and doesn’t flow well. I really disliked how the song opened as well because of the cheesy English recited by some random guy who’s trying too hard to sound cool.

The next track is MUCH better. Beautiful Flowers is a gorgeous mix of pop synth and strings with excellent vocals. This is a very cheerful song and my favorite off this single.

Included as a first pressing bonus track on the single is a Winter Acoustic Mix of LOVE LETTER. This version is pretty much a simplified mix of the original that removes the light beats and features only the lovely strings. The end result is a beautiful rendition of the song that is even better than before.

Overall Rating

4 stars
